Which of the network protocols is the one that you don't have to load to share a printer in Windows 9x -- TCP/IP, NetBEUI, NWLINK or IPX/SPX?
Windows 9x will support a shared printer using any supported network protocol, so long as the machine that is hosting the printer has at least one installed protocol in common with the machines that want to access the printer. So if Computer A is running TCP/IP, and Computer B is hosting a shared printer using NWLINK, Computer A will not be able to access the printer. It doesn't matter which network protocol is installed on your 9x computers, so long as it is uniformly installed on all of them.
